Praga is considered as one of the most hipster places in Europe. London has Hackney & Shoreditch, Warsaw boasts its district. Praga is a great place for your photo shoot & history explorers. This is an area of old brick walls, murals, trendy boutiques and artists workshops. Together we will explore the neighborhood looking for the best spots for a photoshoot. Praga, located on the right bank of the Vistula River, luckily was not destroyed during World War 2. However, many of more than 100-year-old houses are in a very poor condition and newly emerging investments are changing this part of Warsaw rapidly. During this special Photowalk Experience, we will walk through the historic & authentic streets of Praga. We will see the famous Zabkowska Street & the old-style Różycki Bazaar. We will look for characteristic chapels in the backyards of old tenement houses, the Orthodox Church of St. Mary Magdalene, a rainbow office building. We will sneak into old tenement houses courtyards and I will show where the first Warsaw`s tram was launched in 1866. We will also visit the newly opened metro station on Szwedzka Street – an iconic spot for Warsaw photographers. Old factories, warehouses & houses are located nearby. The walls of old & new buildings are decorated with murals and contemporary street art. These all elements make Praga unique and a must-visit when you are in Warsaw!
